Brewing beer at home really isn’t all that hard — so long as you have all the right equipment, and just a little bit of patience. But with all the brewing kits available out there, how do you know when you’ve picked the right one? With the HopBox Home-Brewing Kit, you get everything you need to brew, all housed in a stylish wooden crate with storage for every last tool you’ll need. In addition to the handcrafted box (built from responsibly-sourced pine) you get a three-gallon carboy, a hydrometer, a syphon, a funnel, a stopper, an airlock, a thermometer, a cleaning brush, tubing, and more. And with a recipe book, a set of complete instructions, and a brewer’s log, all you need to do is supply the ingredients before you’re making great beer fit to share with friends.
Electric coffeemakers make it far too easy to brew a cup of coffee — they remove you from the process, taking it out of your hands and resulting in coffee that tastes mass-produced — which is why pour-over brewing has become so popular among people who really care about their coffee. The Manual Coffeemaker puts the control back in your hands, letting you brew individual cups that perfectly suit your taste. The machine is handcrafted from double-wall sculpted glass, letting you view the process while holding in all the necessary heat. Just place a filter into the funnel at the top, pour water over the grounds, and let it fill the included carafe — it brews one cup at a time, making it perfect for small offices or individual use.
In 2004, Tereasa Surratt and David Hernandez purchased Camp Wandawega, his childhood getaway, with the intention of preserving its old buildings and cabins. Surratt’s father christened the newly-obtained property by hanging a rope swing on the giant elm located in the center of camp. Sadly, he passed away a year and a half later, and almost immediately afterwards the couple found out that their beloved tree had Dutch Elm disease. Surratt was devastated and couldn’t bring herself to cut it down. Despite its disease, the tree was still strong, and it inspired them and their friends to think about using it in a big way. What resulted was an impressive three-storey treehouse that was built as a labor of love.
